The course starts.
I create my blog using Wordpress and create an article about a TV commercial and its use in the classroom.
We introduce ourselves in the course´s forum
The second task, voting via FAVs isn´t working.
WORDPRESS DOES NOT ACCEPT ANY OF MY WORKS
I´ve tried to link tasks in module 2 to wordpress blog but it does not accept a picasa presentation, not a flickr group of photos, or showing some videos as little screens
I FIND A FRIEND AT BLOGGER
I´ve opened an account at blooger and WOW! everything is working. For the moment it has accepted my Flickr photographs widget and the page where I have to introduce myself (initial page) and state my objectives for the blog
I´ve just created the timetoast account and reported back all the tasks I had already done.
SLIDESHARE AND NEW ARTICLE
Today I´ve linked a slideshare presentation and my comments about what I consider important when teaching.
And also I´ve written an article about Audacity a 2.0 tool with an example of my own
Opinions about collaborative projects
I start giving my opinion about collaborative projects.
My vote is against them.
Delicious discovery WALLWISHER
I create a wall with my partners fave quotes, and participate in theirs. Wallwisher is an excellent tool for brainstorming, for short comments, to test students previous knowledge.
I can´t sincerely say I´ve enjoyed this tool as much as the others. I´ve created an account, but I´m still thinking how will I integrate it in my understanding of teaching.
ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF COLLABORATIVE WORK
I´ve created a post in my blog about the topic. Taking into account both of them I realize that enlarging my understanding of the word "COLLABORATIVE" to many more different types of activities thanks to my partners´comments, my opinion is now more for "collaborative" projects than against them.
A CLASS PLAN
I´ve posted a class plan (60´) using the tools studied in the course.
I´ve selected as a topic "English in the world" and created a video, a tresure hunt and a wallwisher for it.
